This thing making the internet rounds was apparently written by a Dutchman in the 20s...fascinating! I'd love to know how it seems to our monkeys who learned English as a second (or third or fourth) language. The irregularities are hideous even for native speakers, and I know there are some differences among British/American/Australian speakers...

a nightmare! But a fun one.
